Roll for the Soul is a not-for-profit bike cafe, workshop and event space in the centre of Bristol, England.

While the cafe is clearly for people who love bikes and cycling, you don’t have to be a cycling fan to eat and drink there. If you are a cyclist and need to get your bike fixed, you can get it done in the workshop while you have some food and / or drink in the cafe.

About Roll for the Soul cafe

Bristol is Britain’s first Cycling City but it didn’t have a bike cafe like Look Mum No Hands! in London or Mojo in San Francisco. The idea for the cafe came in 2012, and a year later the cafe opened. Not only is it a bike cafe, it’s a non-profit, run for and by Bristol’s cycling community.

The cafe premises was completely renovated with help from volunteers who gave more than 500 hours of help with things including cleaning, painting, building stud walls, plastering, and making decorations.
